Digi-Key Corp., a global electronic components distributor, has entered an agreement to distribute GeneSiC Semiconductor's silicon-carbide technologies. According to GeneSiC, its products play a key role in conserving energy in numerous high power systems, allowing them to run faster, cooler and more efficiently.

"Digi-Key was the missing piece to our distribution program. This agreement enhances GeneSiC Semiconductor's ability to seed the market with our brand of silicon carbide high voltage, high temperature, and first of their kind (1N8XX SiC diode/2N76XX SiC transistors) Mil-Standard products," said Michael DiGangi, chief business development officer at GeneSiC.

GeneSiC claims to have the largest portfolio of commercial SiC diodes, offering a best in class SiC switch, the Super Junction Transistor (SJT), which will revolutionize IGBT and FET designs for engineers who have been looking for higher performance.

"We are excited to add GeneSiC Semiconductor to our expansive line card," said Mark Zack, VP, global semiconductor product at Digi-Key. "Adding suppliers as committed to innovation as GeneSiC Semiconductor affirms our commitment to providing the newest, state-of-the-art products to our customers."

GeneSiC Semiconductor's products are available for purchase on the Digi-Key website.
